Sims 3 Can't buy anything

Post by appletree12345 on Tue 07 Aug 2012, 19:57

Hi -

I'm having the same problem that was described in:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t4715-can-t-buy-anything-in-buy-modesolved

I downloaded Sims 3 with the Pets Expansion pack and the World Adventures expansion pack earlier today! I have read through the fix and done it all correctly. The game opens and loads fine except for a window that says:

It looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that does not match your current version of The Sims 3. We recommend that you either uninstall these game modifications or get updated versions of them - otherwise you may experience crashes or significant bugs. Do you want to quit?

but then I press no and the game seems to be working fine! It loads and I created the characters and moved them into a house. The only problem I can tell so far is a pretty big one - I can't buy anything! I go to buy mode and there are no furniture options and it just says "cannot be placed on this type of lot." What do I do? I updated the game, and it says in the Launcher that the game is up to date! Is it possible one of the expansion packs isn't? I'm also not sure how to tell which version of the game I have. I think they're up to date though!

Any ideas? Help!

Hello,

What's your game version?
And do you have the latest fix?

I downloaded the ultimate fix when I was first installing the two expansion packs which was earlier today so I have the latest one!

It doesn't say which version I have when I scroll over it

Yeah sorry I'm on a mac I didn't realize there was a different place to post that Very Happy

From what I can tell the regular Sims 3 is The Sims3 v1.00.7040

Sims 3 Pets is The Sims 3 Pets v1.00.7042

World adventures is The Sims3 v1.00.6056

Does that help?

Hello,

Uhhm good question lol.
To be safe, I recommend downloading and installing this manual patch.
Also, get the latest MAC fix and use it's crack after you use the update.
That should probably take care of it.

Actually I just realized I was looking at those version numbers wrong

The Sims 3 is 1.26.89.013017

Sims 3 pets is 10.0.96.013001

World Adventures is 2.16.6.010032

Is that right? Don't know if that changes anything!

Hello,

Is your base game 1.26 or was it a typo and you meant 1.36 ?
